4.1 Agriculture, Natural Resources & Climate Change

This program has a whole-of-landscape approach to land management. It will improve the capacity of our rural land base to maximise output of commercial and non-commercial environmental services

img aboutThis program will improve our ability to respond to climate change and to understand how rural landscapes are adapting to climate change.

ANRCC is focused on a whole-of-landscape approach to land management. It recognises the role of biomass yield and quality, biodiversity and habitat as necessary indicators of enviro-economic sustainability and improvement for government and commercial land managers.

The theme’s focus areas will develop spatially-based measurement, monitoring, management and market-enabling tools for commercial and government land managers to meet the demands of climate change.

4.12 Biomass Business

Through spatial information, Biomass Business empowers Australia’s response to climate change by transforming the way public and private land managers balance agricultural productivity and sustainability.

4.17 Big Data Solutions for Environmental Monitoring

Environmental monitoring of land and coastlines for natural resource management is heavily impacted by ‘Big Data’ limitations; the data that when uncovered shows patterns, correlations and trends. These limitations come about because of the reliance on multi-temporal...

4.18 Biomass Business 2

Through the use of spatial technologies there are significant opportunities for livestock producers to improve management and productivity of pasture. Both improved feed allocation and optimal pasture production can result from better information...

4.103 Improved High-Resolution Carbon Accounting

Building on the work of Biomass Business, this project will refine and apply a high-resolution approach to identify the lands across NSW with carbon storage potential (CSP) for targeted management intervention. With the correct agile tools, land managers...

4.104 LandFor: Landsat for Forests

As a follow-on project from Project 2.07, this new project will use remote sensing to facilitate and “unlock” large area synoptic woody monitoring and reporting.

4.105 The Digital Great Barrier Reef

This project aims to create an immersive and interactive visual environment to better monitor the health of the Great Barrier Reef.
